Halfway; The debut feature from Ben Caird offers some pointed reflections on America’s broken justice system. Byron Smith (Quinton Aaron from Oscar-winner The Blind Side) is one of the lucky ones. On release from prison he is offered a job working on a struggling family farm in Wisconsin. He is the only black man in a white heartland. As he struggles to adjust to a world far beyond his comfort zone and a family riven with problems, outsider Byron is faced with stark choices if he is to remain on the straight and narrow. An involving, smartly observed drama that puts a human face to a national crisis.
